007-Bacon Cheddar Dog Treats (Tyson Treats)
Updated: May 16, 2021
We celebrate Tyson's birthday (on May the 4th!) with these easy, special occasion dog biscuits that combine his favorite flavors--bacon and cheese. You can make them in this dog biscuit pan or roll them out and make fun shapes. IMPORTANT NOTE: make sure to check with your vet if your dog has never eaten these ingredients before.

BACON CHEDDAR DOG TREATS
1/2 cup ground millet (you can replace with corn meal or flour or a combination of both)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup bacon bits
up to 1/2 cup of applesauce, if needed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat egg then mix in all other ingredients. If the dough is too dry, add another egg or some applesauce. You want this to be a soft dough that holds together.
Lightly brush olive oil over your each bone shape in the Nordic Ware Puppy Love pan.
Press or spoon the dough into the bone shapes.
If rolling out the biscuits, you may need to add more millet (or other grain flour)
Bake for about 12 minutes
Let cool in the pan for about 3 minutes, then remove treats to a cooling rack. If the cheese causes them to stick, use a plastic knife to carefully loosen the treat from the pan.
When completely cool, give these as a special treat to your best friend!
PROVENANCE: This recipe was created just for Tyson, but he's willing to share with his friends. The millet has more nutritional value than white flour and there's protein from the cheese and bacon. But, these are definitely a special occasion kind of treat.
EQUIPMENT: The PUPPY LOVE baking pan from Nordic Ware makes this easy! When using the pan, be sure to brush the shapes with olive oil before adding the dough.
VARIATION: Dog biscuits are pretty flexible. You could add small chunks of apple or a few tablespoons of pumpkin and offset the extra moisture with more millet.
